Welcome. My name is Maverick. I very much enjoy what I do and I hope that you will benefit from the information or assistance that I provide.
Q: my question is as man and wife living under the same roof am I Legally able to own and have firearms in my possession I have all proper licenses and permits, and are able to carry concealed weapons license.I have them locked in safe with the only key
ANS: Yes, I am not finding anything in IOWA law that would prevent you from having a firearm in your possession based on any criminal history of your wife so long as you have all proper licenses and permits. The lock and key safety method is applicable for minors under the following IOWA law:
724.22 PERSONS UNDER TWENTY-ONE -- SALE, LOAN, GIFT,
MAKING AVAILABLE --
7. Access to loaded firearms by children restricted --
penalty. It shall be unlawful for any person to store or leave a
loaded firearm which is not secured by a trigger lock mechanism,
placed in a securely locked box or container, or placed in some other
location which a reasonable person would believe to be secure from a
minor under the age of fourteen years, if such person knows or has
reason to believe that a minor under the age of fourteen years is
likely to gain access to the firearm without the lawful permission of
the minor's parent, guardian, or person having charge of the minor,
the minor lawfully gains access to the firearm without the consent of
the minor's parent, guardian, or person having charge of the minor,
and the minor exhibits the firearm in a public place in an unlawful
manner, or uses the firearm unlawfully to cause injury or death to a
person. This subsection does not apply if the minor obtains the
firearm as a result of an unlawful entry by any person. A violation
of this subsection is punishable as a serious misdemeanor.
